In Numbered Lives: Life and Death in Quantum Media, scholar and feminist digital humanities practitioner Jacqueline Wernimont examines recordkeeping technologies used to account for human lives and bodies, beginning as early as the 15th century. The book, in part a robust critical historiography, challenges us to interrogate and engage mindfully with contemporary data issues and methods, and with the ways in which they shape our narratives regarding the value of lives and cultures.

Let’s not wait for George R.R. Martin to wrap up ASOIAF with the 3,000 page The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring. Let’s talk of thrones and let the games resume this fertile Beltrane (May Day, Friday, May 1, 2020), opening with a panel on Season 8 of A Game of Thrones, airing what went right and wrong with the HBO series, viewed by 31 million. Perhaps you want to craft a formal paper (20 minutes) or propose joining a panel (or bring your own team from campus); offer a lightning presentation (5 minutes) or experiment with a PechaKucha (20 slides, 20 second commentary each, in 6’40” total).

The 14th Amendment stipulates that “all persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.” Yet the conferrence of the rights of U.S. citizenship to Indigenous peoples, descendants of enslaved Africans, nonwhite immigrants, and refugees has been repeatedly contested and warped by and in federal and state law. The full expression of national citizenship by nonwhite peoples in the U.S. South has been mutually shaped and conscripted by the experience and legacies of Jim Crow, indigenous removal, and anti-immigrant and refugee policies.
